Does anyone beside me think that Russell's needs to be expanded? You would think that after being burnt numerous times and a recent flood, that they would have considered expanding. I have had good experiences and I have had bad experiences. The good experiences thus far has out weighed the bad, but that being said Id like to see a bigger place. The Golden Rule would have been perfect!!!

I totally agree! Thnly downside to going to Russells is having the salad bar right up next to the butts of waiting customers in line so close to the door. They should definitely expand their facility. Golden rule was a perfect suggestion!

Your statement makes absolutely no sense. Perhaps you own the Golden Rule property? You suggest that based on their recent flooding they should expand? They were among many victims of the recent flood. They took a huge financial hit just like all of the other business owners affected did. And FEMA doesn't help businesses, just homeowners. Instead of encouraging them to expand which they can do right where they are when they choose to, you should be encouraging the city to clean the drainage creeks to prevent business owners sustaining anymore unnecessary losses from flooding.

Amen, Brother! City engineering needs to fix the drainage problem! Going to happen again!

NO flooding, from brandon ms. I do not own the Golden Rule property. What makes no sense is that how you take a small suggestion on how to improve an already established business, and turn it into your personal rant on city drainage. But sense you decided to go completely off in left field on a comment that I made, a comment that had no negative meaning, here let me get on your page. I was one of the MANY who was flooded. And had MANY friends with businesses lose everything. As far as encouraging the drainage issue, tell ya what,,,,,, lead by example. I will be right behind ya, and instead of bashing your comment as you have mine, I will be in your corner. So lets here your ideas, Im all ears. Or,,, are you going to be like so many others on here and use it as a place to bitch, moan, and bash others?

First I'm sorry you're defensive and feel bashed.

"You would think that after being burnt numerous times and a recent flood, that they would have considered expanding."

That sounds like you are criticizing a business who suffered a huge economic loss for not considering expansion?? Sorry, maybe that wasn't what you meant but that's what is sounds like. I'm sure all the flooded businesses would love to expand if they could afford to.

"I have had good experiences and I have had bad experiences. The good experiences thus far has out weighed the bad, but that being said Id like to see a bigger place."

Sorry that didn't exactly sound like an glowing endorsement. You mentioned the flooding so I didn't really going off on it. My point is that Russell's is a great business who can thrive right where they have always been. No one should have to move if the city would prevent future flooding. If they don't it doesn't matter where any business is because we will all be underwater the next time.

It is really smart business that they don't move. Let me explain. What better advertisement could a place have than a line out the door on hot, rainy, and/or cold days? Second, some places have went under as soon as they did expand. I believe the owners were taught the business by one of the smartest men I was lucky enough to have ever known. Great Man!

Flooding you make a good point. And if my remarks came off as criticism, then it was meant as positive criticism. Paul, you too make a great point. It is GREAT advertising to see all of us Corinthians standing and waiting in horrible weather to get in. I only thought about it from a business stand point as to the HUGE potential they would have if they was larger. Revenues would do nothing but increase. My remarks about the fires and floods was only meant that NOW would have been the time to expand. Its like people have always said "I'm going to come back better and stronger than I was before" We always say this when we are met with adversity and with fires and floods, what better time act. Russell's is not in danger of going anywhere they have a GREAT business. But just think what someone like Sam Walton would have done had he just had 1 Walmart. Yes he would prolly still been well off, but prolly not been the conglomerate we know it as of today. Now granted comparing Russell's and Walmart are like apples and oranges. But the concept is the same. As for BUBBA,(who has got to be a total idiot, or a child) to respond or retaliate would be more attention than you deserve. Maybe when you respond to this comment (as Im sure you will) you will have a different name. And then you can bash me under another name and take BUBBA's side. Which no matter what name you come back and post under, it wont matter. You and I will know who you really are. Actually being the Restaurant guru at McDonalds that Im sure you are, Im sure we all fail in comparison in your knowledge of the restaurant business. But until someone starts a thread talking about the drive-thru, I'd suggest you stick with saying "can I take your order please" and leave the big topics for us adults.

Thanks Nator. I agree that everyone wants to come back bigger and stronger but in this economy to take the huge unnecessary hit of the flood leaves many unable to consider expansion. And Paul is right, the dynamic of their business might not be better just by being bigger. And to BUBBA, that was rude and uncalled for.

Agree. We don't even think about eating there because the wait. If the wait was in an actual waiting area and not long we would give them some of our money.

Ever gone to Corkey's in Memphis on Poplar in the evening? You'll be waiting in the parking lot for them to call your name. But the BBQ is worth the wait.

Yes have been there and had no wait! Corkeys is known nationaly as the #1 bbq house in Memphis also. They also have 2 locations because they needed 2 expand. Russells can't really be compared to Corkys. Russells does do an Awsome local business and would could do more.
